    My Sunday ride was going so well and then this nutter decides that i'm too insignificant to wait for.
    The sun was too her right as she pulled out so she was not blinded by light!

    What you don't see in the video is the mouthful I got through the window as I rode past her.. Like I was the devil incarnate lol.

    Just for info I was out on my Busa the day before and I had exactly the same happen. I was going a tad faster and I ended up locking the brakes and almost ramming the side of the car. Thanks to my ninja like reflexes I managed to avert disaster. Whats more annoying is I didn't have my camera on :sad: but believe me it definitely got the smarty going.

    Oh wait, it was a BMW? Alright then..... Move along, nothing extraordinary to see here..... c'mon move along.......

    (Seriously sorry mate, glad you managed to get away unharmed. Clearly a person with problems about driving with due care and attention -and then wants to blame you!!!!!!!! What an idiot!)

    Is that it ?
    Yes she should have waited, but you could have slowed down to make sure she doesn't hit you. Yes she is wrong, but a car hurts more than my right of way etc etc etc

    I didn't get chance too. Didn't know she was going to try and ram me until I was almost upon the junction.

    What did she say? Maybe she was annoyed at herself for making a mistake.

    You've got her number plate. You've got great video. Go straight to the police station this morning. A year without a driving licence for that driver will make the roads safer for all cyclists.

    Terrible driving, but I have to say I would have been on the brakes - it was pretty clear there was a high risk of the car pulling out from its positioning. As Kies says, being in the right is no comfort when you're in the road with a broken leg.

    On topic.. Our local police has an excellent twitter account so it's worth looking there.

    Off topic.. What camera are you using ?

    It always leaves me speechless when someone else blatantly pulls out on me when I'm on my motorbike or cycle and give me a mouthful for basically having right of way!!

    It's the age old self defence mechanism when they're in the wrong to automatically blame someone else!

    Perhaps the police should consider a charge of attempted murder?
